Victor Takes the Feathers

While photographing the Canadian Geese at a nearby pond, a huge gander goose brawl erupted. My guess is that another male got too close to a nesting female and the mate of female didn't like it. the brawl started on land and then went to the water. The winner of the brawl is the goose in the back...with a mouth full of feathers from the loser.
